On January 10, the commission requested the court for another month to complete its investigation, said the advocate general. The court then granted the commission’s request.

However, the court said the commission should complete the inquiry as soon as it can.

On January 11, senior military and police officers were sent letters by the commission, asking them to record their statements in the case. This included the former Peshawar corps commander and former KP inspector general of police.
